Broad Run Counselors Win National Recognition

 

The American School Counselor Association (ASCA) has designated Broad Run High School as a Recognized ASCA Model Program (RAMP) school.

 

This honor was presented during the recent ASCA National Conference in Boston.

 

The RAMP designation, awarded for aligning with the criteria in the ASCA National Model, recognizes schools that are committed to delivering a comprehensive, data-driven school counseling program and an exemplary educational environment. Following the ASCA National Model, which focuses on leadership, advocacy, collaboration and systemic change, school counselors in Loudoun County Public Schools (LCPS) now ask the question, “How are students different as a result of what we do?”

 

Broad Run was one of only 28 high schools across the country earning the RAMP designation this year.

 

“LCPS is very proud of the Broad Run school counselor team,” said Assistant Superintendent for Pupil Services Dr. Asia Jones. “They are strategically focused on supporting their students’ social-emotional and academic needs as well as career and college aspirations. Broad Run High School joins nine other LCPS schools that have achieved this national recognition.”

 

The counseling team that earned this honor includes:

  • Counseling Director Casey Sarafinas
  • Kimberley Harris
  • Taylor Kewer
  • Vanessa Koubratoff
  • Jennie Kroll
  • Chad Obzud
  • Lauren Pasek
  • Mollie Stratton

RAMP applications are reviewed by teams of school counseling professionals.

 

The American School Counselor Association (ASCA) is a nonprofit, 501(c)(3) professional organization based in Alexandria. Founded in 1952, ASCA, the school counseling division of the American Counseling Association, has a network of 50 state associations and a membership of nearly 32,000 school counseling professionals.
